'The Murderer of Your Heritage', An Immense Concrete Installation by Adrián Villar Rojas

Created for this years 54th Venice Biennale, Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas has created a monolithic exhibit in the Artigliere in the Arsenale. Adrián, along with a team of builders, created the installation on site using clay over a framework of cement, burlap and wood. The effect created is stunning, like you’re walking amongst ancient ruins of some long lost civilization… that perhaps also had some anime. The sheer scale of the work is also amazing, the ceilings have to be at least 25 feet, it’s no wonder that it took two months to complete everything.

Thankfully, the amazing folks over at Vernissage TV have done a video tour of the space so you can see for yourself what you’re missing. To see some more information and photos about the exhibit, visit Yatzer.
